    A movie this unspeakably awful can make an audience a little crazy. You want to throw things, yell at the actors, beg them to stop. But the film drags on, digging horrible memories into the brain -- like Bruce Willis and Danny Aiello's singing.

    Just awful… There is probably not one interrupted 60-second stretch in which a line of dialogue doesn't clunk, an action doesn't ring false or an irritating plot turn doesn't present itself. [25 May 1991]
  3. This may be the only would-be blockbuster that's a sprawling, dissociated mess on purpose. It's a perverse landmark: the first postmodern Hollywood disaster.

    Even Willis seems a bit bewildered at times, as if asking himself how he managed to get into such a mess. [24 May 1991]
  5. Everybody figured producer Joel Silver and Willis couldn't lose and guess what? They all rolled craps.

    It ends up choking on a never-ending stream of inept gags... A worst-case scenario of wackiness gone out of whack. [24 May 1991]
  7. A colossally sour and ill-conceived misfire.

    Despite all of its failures of wit, sense, and pace, the film does most effectively flaunt the millions spent on it. The inane action takes place in splendiferous settings. [23 May 1991]

    Boring and banal, overwrought and undercooked, Hudson Hawk is beyond bad. [24 May 1991]

    A relentlessly annoying clay duck that crash-lands in a sea of wretched excess and silliness.
  11. 10
    Merely airheaded where it should be lighthearted, Hudson Hawk offers a klutzy, charmless hero, and wallows dully in limp slapstick and lowest common denominator crudeness.

    Hudson Hawk is not a work of art indeed, but it's a great action-comedy B movie that will keep you entertained with its cheap puns and cheap stunts. This is what the '80s were about!
